Area Palaces "Na Remont" - April 09 ?

I wonder if any of you local experts would know about the following. I plan to revisit St Peterburg in the first part of April (2009) and am wondering about the status of any reconstruction work on the following architectural sites.

- Alexander Palace (Pushkin)

- Menshikov Great Palace (Orianenbaum/Lomonsov)

- Chinese Palace (Orianenbaum/Lomonsov)

The condition of these will help make some decisions for some others that might be accompanying me.

I was there last in April of 2007 – Menshikov’s palace was completely covered in scaffolding and plastic – it was inaccessible.

Alexander palace had some painting done on the upper balustrade but there was no scaffolding. I had read that they were planning to start reconstruction this year. I had hoped to visit once more in its ‘pristine’ state of disrepair!

I would appreciate any expert opinions on this...particularly the Alexander Palace.

Chinese palace can be seen from the outside – the restoration of the façade was completed this fall.

Grand Menshikov palace is still under the restoration.

Alexander palace – there is an exhibition called ‘memories of Tsarskoe Selo’ but the main restoration had not started yet.
